Mupirocin to treat acne

Common Questions and Answers about Mupirocin to treat acne


Avatar n tn does mupirocin help to treat pimples?
Avatar m tn Hello, These small bumps can be due to the small irriatted hair follicles or sweat dermatitis due to the clogging of pores. The athletic shorts during basketball could be responsible for this. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful.
Avatar f tn I have been tested and know I don't have any STD and I shower daily, so I dont understand how all of a sudden after years of never changing my routine that I appear to have acne in that area. It is extremely embarassing and I'm ashamed to be intimate with anyone. When I was younger I had severe facial acne due to poor eating habits, however never in that area. Since then I have changed my eating habits and have clear facial skin, so I assume that can't be the problem either.

Avatar n tn Impetigo is not serious, often goes away on its own, and is easy to treat. Mild cases can be handled by gentle cleansing, removing crusts, and applying the prescription-strength antibiotic ointment mupirocin (Bactroban). An allergy like Contact dermatitis can also produce vesicular lesions at the point of contact. Contact dermatitis is caused by exposure to a material to which the person has become hypersensitive or allergic.
Avatar f tn So basically I'm so fed up with the repetitive cycle of get it, treat it, get it again, treat it again. Can anyone help???
Avatar n tn Hi, I am in my early 30's and I have been on 80mg Prozac to treat OCD for several years now. I work in Cosmetics/Skincare and I have a long-running pimple picking problem. It started when I was 13 in the bathroom, where I would lock myself in for hours and try to squeeze the life out of pimples that both existed and didn't exist. My habit was exacerbated in college by watching my roommate with acne issues do extractions on a regular basis with an extractor tool.
Avatar f tn I continue to experience cyst-like ingrown hairs on my inner thighs, even in the absence of hair removal procedures. It looks similar to cystic acne, though not as painful (except to look at). What are the best ways to prevent ingrown hairs? And, what can I do to treat ingrown hairs when I do get them?? Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn Hello, These can be small clogged pores or perioral dermatitis. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful.In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn It is not itchy but it feel uncomfortable when touched, especially on my buttoks. Any suggestions on what i shoud use to treat these bumps? Will bactroban cream work? Will they leave marks on my skin? if so what could i use to remove the marks?.....thanks!
Avatar f tn Hello, Back and shoulder acne are quite difficult to treat compared to acne on other parts of the body. Thoroughly wash your body everyday, especially the back and shoulder part using a back brush and frequently change your bed sheet, as it is conducive for bacterial growth. Engage in a diet that is low in sugar and fat but is rich in vitamins. This prevents acne by preventing the buildup of excess oil on the skin. Also refrain from touching or squeezing your shoulder acne .
Avatar n tn It's frustrating and my experience is that you almost have to force doctors to deal with you, because many just want to dismiss the problems as not being serious.
Avatar n tn Propionibacteria live in the hair follicles of adult skin and contribute to acne. They can invade normal skin which can result in exanthems (rashes). The most common bacteria to cause skin infections is Staphylococcus aureus which causes Folliculitis and Furunculosis (boils). Boil or furuncle is a skin disease caused by the infection of hair follicles, thus resulting in the localized accumulation of pus and dead tissue. The symptoms of boils are red, pus-filled lumps.
Avatar m tn My dermatologist has not spent adequate time (in my opinion) to diagnose and treat the problem. Possible disorders: 1) Keratosis Pilaris 2) Gram Negative Folliculitus (From long term antibiotic usage) 3) Scalp Folliculitis 4) Intermittent Acne Symptoms: 1) Raised white bumps with red inflammation covering upper arms, shoulders and sometimes on the forearms. A few of these are also on my thighs. 2) The white bumps oftentimes come to the surface like acne.
Avatar n tn He called me in another script for doxycycline, erythromycin, and now also wanted to to use mupirocin 2%(in my nose). He also advised me to change my pillow cases every night for the duration of this next prescription. At the conclusion of the second prescrption, my condition not only wasn't improving, it seemed to be getting worse. I went back in to see my doctor and he took a culture of puss from the affected area on my face. Unfortunately, the results of the culture came back sterile.
Avatar f tn on my butt since I was about 14 and I am now seventeen, with no signs of improvement. There are occasions where it looks hopefull and begins to clear up, then they pop right back over the course of hours. It does not matter if I have been working out or just warm all day or if the area has been cold all day. Wet or dry makes no difference either. I've alternated different powders and ointments, and the only product that seemed to help temporarily was a zinc bacatracin ointment.
Avatar n tn I've had these bumps, maybe acne, on my butt for most of my life......what is the cause of these bumps? I also have rosacea. How do I treat this problem or cure it? Is it a dietary issue? Should I see a specialist?
Avatar f tn If it is maybe folliculitis or cellulitis Cellulitis on the arm Orbital cellulitis Proctitis - streptococcal Cellulitis (which seem to fit more)..what can I do to treat at home? I really can't afford a doctor's visit at the moment. I'm not sure if this could be related but just in the last few months..a patch Allergy testing Skin color - patchy of pimple like, itchy, painful Painful menstrual periods bumps appeared on my upper back between the shoulder Shoulder arthroscopy Shoulder pain blades.
Avatar f tn I have put some over the counter acne medicine on my chest to see if it was pimples I put Clearasil stayclear on which is a white medication that is over the counter and it really dries out the skin. It sort of seems to be working on the top of my chest. It is also in the middle of my breasts and on my breast I am not sure if it is acne or not. They are red/pink bumps with some white heads on it. Could it be because it is hot and summer time and I am getting more acne then usual?
Avatar n tn i never thought it was herpes because i seem to get pimples in various places all the time and these pimples seemed to appear after heavy workouts but not after every one, but after researching herpes im scared to think thats what it is. they never look like blisters, just regular butt pimples. they are also on both sides of my buttocks and 2 of them are completely parrellel and seem to rub together when im in motion. they also have never looked like blisters.
1009876 tn?1326493677 Right now I have about 6 of them in different spots on my scalp. There seem to be more, and they seem to get worse roughly 2 weeks after my menstrual cycle. Not sure if that has anything to do with them though. I do have sensitive skin, and have noticed since being off the pill, my face is a lot more oily than before. Could this just be scalp pimples? Infected hair follicles? How do I treat it?
Avatar m tn Hi there, see your doctor for antibiotics to treat any infection. Next, it may be a wart or there may be some foreign body (which is quite common) and this can be removed easily.
Avatar n tn I once thought they were pimples, so i used an acne product that goes by the name of Clearasil Ultra Vanishing Acne Treatment Cream. It said to Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer. So I did before I went to bed. And it usually was mostly gone by morning. I want to know what this is so I can treat it properly, do you have any ideas of what it is and/or suggestions of how to get rid of it?
Avatar n tn // It would be advisable to consult a skin specialist for your symptoms and a proper clinical examination. Let us know if you need any other information and post us on how you are doing. Regards.
Avatar m tn (I've had a few of them in the past, but always thought they were simply acne.) It wasn't until the past week that I suspected some type of infection. I haven't been sexually active, so this can't be attributed to anything of the like. There are small, scattered red spots in addition to blotches that seem discolored (pinkish and red and color, about identical to the individual spots). They DON'T itch, cause irritation, or contain any type of pus or discharge. Everything is basically flat.
Avatar n tn I would use Sudocrem, a nappy rash cream which is also indicated for other skin conditions like acne. It has zinc in it which is good for your skin.

Avatar f tn if not, being HIV discarded where else should i look to find answers ? how should i treat it ? thanks for your time and help... .
Avatar n tn To get the best results from Tretinoin one should use it along with alpha hydroxy acid agents which are normally used to treat acne. Let us know if you need any other information and post us about what the skin specialist advises. Regards.
Avatar n tn If anyone knows what this might be, it would be very helpful to me. I had some acne-like bumps in the pubic hair region that has left some pink splotchy scarring. I'm hoping to figure out what it is and find out how to treat it. You can see old scars on the left side and two bumps on the right side. The area is shaved so you can see what I'm talking about (ignore the razorburn near the bottom of the pic). If anyone can help I'd be very thankful. By the way, no itch, burn, pain.
